To nursing and this BB. Glad to have a KIWI!

There have been no cases of SARS at any hospital where I work. Suspected cases have been tested.

We use computers for charting, not hand held though. I have met nurses who used them.

hi , welcom . i m in China .many cases of sars and suspended cases have been found there. i live in xi'an city, there are more than 10 cases have been found by now. but for almost more than 10 days ,no new cases of clinical diagnosis or even suspended have been reported. according to the report by our government

the totle county has just 16 cases and 13 are in Beijing. so it is much safer now.

by the way,have you learned something about evidence based nursing in school. materials i can find in China is poor, but i read from magazines that nursing students have been asked to learn it in western countrys

No SARS here, as far as I know. We are looking at hand held computers for nurses and PDA's for aides.
